Our founder, Britt Adams, visited FREESET in Kolkata four years ago and was moved by their mission, impact, and their commitment to the seamstresses they employ. The Freeset factory is in the heart of one of Asia’s largest red-light areas with ~10,000 sex workers. The women who come to Freeset for employment are ready to leave work in the brothels and pursue a new life for themselves and their families.
Better still, as Freeset becomes a trustworthy staple in the community, they are able to help families ensure their daughters are never trafficked away - prevention!
